Modern Maker Lorna Phillips wins Glenfiddich Residency Award
Previous Modern Makers participant Lorna Phillips has won this year's Glenfiddich Residency Award at the opening of the RSA New Contemporaries exhibition in Edinburgh, where she is currently showing her work as a selected graduate of Edinburgh College of Art.
Lorna took part in our Modern Makers programme with Fitch and McAndrew Slipware Potters in 2017 and our Jump Cut fim making project, as well as our recent Modern Makers exhibition at Gracefield.
We are delighted that Lorna has won this year's Glenfiddich Residency Award, announced at the opening of the RSA New Contemporaries exhibition in Edinburgh, where she is currently showing her work as a selected graduate of Edinburgh College of Art.
This top class prize gives Lorna a space in the competitive international residency at Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown this summer, alongside 5 other artists and makers from around the world.
Lorna’s research-based practice excavates traces of material culture and social history by journeying into the biographies of the land, using the material of clay as the path into the landscape and what it holds. Learn more about her practice here.
Lorna is a previous participant of Upland's Modern Makers, funded by The Holywood Trust and the William Grant Foundation.
